In August 2012, the world's first known "liliger" was born at a zoo in Novosibirsk, Russia, ABC News reported. The breed is a cross between a lion and a lion-tiger hybrid, known as a liger, according to the Associated Press.
The cub, named Kiara, bonded with a nurturing domestic cat for a short time, after her liger mother couldn't produce milk, according to BBC News.
This week, photos of that adorable interaction surfaced on the Daily Mail.
